A Hammonton man, who served as Hammonton High School’s Band Director has been charged with the sexual assault of a 16-year-old student.

Jason Koenig, 26, has been charged with four different counts. He has not yet been taken into custody.

According to Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain,

The State alleges that, while employed by Hammonton High School as an Aide and
Marching Band Director, Koenig committed these crimes against a 16 year-old
Hammonton High School student in November and December of 2013, while he had
supervisory or disciplinary power over the victim by virtue of his occupational status.
Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Mark Sandson set bail at $200,000 cash full.
A crime of the 2nd degree carries a potential sentence of 5 to 10 years imprisonment in
State prison. A crime of the 4th degree carries a potential sentence of imprisonment not
to exceed 18 months.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Atlantic County Prosecutor’s
Office Special Victims Unit Detective Danielle Rosiello at (609)-909-7986, or
Hammonton Police Detective Peter Hagerty at (609)-561-4000, ext 231.

 

The Press of Atlantic City reports that Koenig resigned his position on April 23.
